If you hate scratches on your bike as much as we do, keep it protected with the Off-Road Shelter Frame Pack from Effetto Mariposa. The kit offers almost invisible protection against impacts and scratches on your ride. Available as a sealed pack with two 54 x 500mm sections, its enough protection for one bike.

Who is this item for: Any rider who wants to protect their bike from scratches and impact damage.

How does it work: The tape is made with a composite structure. It features a 0.2mm thick scratch resistant upper layer, and a 1.0mm gummy layer underneath. The material distributes impact energy within itself to reduce it's efficiency to damage your frame.

Material: It is not specified what the protection is made from.

What type of frame: It is suitable for both carbon and metal (steel or alloy) frames.

Stand out features: Its easy to apply, it wont yellow like other frame protection and is even UV resistant (so the underlying paint will not be damaged). The Visco-elasticity also reduces vibrations which can only be a good thing, especially with some very rigid carbon frames.

Installation: Shelter frame protection is defined as semi-structural, so it is very strong but non-permanent. It takes Shelter 8 hours after installation to develop its optimal bonding, after that, the frame can be washed as per normal. It is also easy to install:
  1. Remove any cables or interfering elements and clean the area with Isopropyl alcohol. Remove any traces of dried alcohol with another clean cloth.
  2. Take a suitable pre-cut element or cut a custom sized piece and test fit it without removing the backing paper.
  3. Remove the backing paper and be careful not to touch the surface with your fingers (your finger prints will show up otherwise).
  4. Gently position the piece to where you want to protect without applying pressure or stretching it. Re-position if necessary.
  5. Start applying even pressure. Work from the centre out towards the sides to avoid trapping air bubbles or making wrinkles.
  6. Make sure you work on the whole element to make sure it sticks to the surface, especially on curved surfaces or tight edges.
  7. Go ride your bike!
Dimensions: This pack comes with two 54 x 500mm sections. Ready to be cut into the shapes you need to protect your bike. The total weight is 70gm.

  • 2 x 54 x 500mm sections of Off-Road Shelter protection.
Pros: Will help protect your frame from scratches and impact damage. Easy to install and will not yellow over time.
